You must answer one question. You must refer to at least 2 articles from the course assignments in your answer. You may refer to more than 2 articles, but you should not refer to any material that was not assigned in the course. These are thought pieces designed to show you understand and can synthesize the material. You should cite the articles within your answer like this: (Smith 2020) and you need not include a reference page so long as the citations are clear which readings you are citing. The answer to the question should be between 2 and 4 pages long. Choose one of these questions to answer: What are human rights and how can we get states to recognize them? Identify and discuss some of the risks when the international community attempts to improve human rights whether through military intervention or economic sanctions. Agree or disagree with the following statement: “The protection of human rights only occurs with respect to issues everyone already agrees about, so international treaties and other efforts to protect human rights are a waste of time.” Make sure you explain why you agree or disagree.
